2013 WEC StartUp Class

The University of Scranton Women’s Entrepreneurship Center (WEC) and Small Business Development Center (SBDC) recently teamed up to offer “StartUP” a 6-week certificate program for aspiring women entrepreneurs. Sponsored by Pennstar Bank, the series was  held at The University of Scranton during April & May.

Facilitated by experienced SBDC consultants, the series was designed to give women the step-by-step guidance needed to develop successful small businesses. Participants in this interactive program learned start-up basics, legal and insurance considerations, marketing and social media essentials, business plan development, accounting and budget skills, financing options and requirements, and goal setting. Local women business owners also visited the sessions to share their experiences.

The University of Scranton Women’s Entrepreneurship Center is a partnership between the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Kania School of Management (KSOM) that utilizes experienced SBDC consultants along with carefully selected KSOM student interns. The interns are highly skilled, and enhance the work done by consultants by assisting with training, conducting research, and completing projects.
